Abstract Genomic analysis of a large set of phages infecting the common hostMycobacterium smegmatis mc 2 155 shows that they span considerable genetic diversity. There are more than 20 distinct types that lack nucleotide similarity with each other, and there is considerable diversity within most of the… (More)
